This lesson engages students on the true meaning of jihad, how it is viewed in the Muslim community, and how jihad has been misinterpreted by radical groups. Students work individually or in pairs to analyze the information regarding jihad and answer the six overarching questions -- then students complete a writing prompt to document the "realizations" they have had regarding jihad.
A key is included as well as a 1:1 Google compatible version!
